Model News

For 2009, Volkswagen's Eos convertible enters its third model year with some trim changes. The VR6 model has been dropped, as have the base Turbo models. Only the Komfort and the Lux model are available powered by the 2.0L turbo engine. White Gold Metallic arrives as a new exterior color, while Island Gray, Paprika Red, and Silver Essence have been dropped. Some high-tech options have been reshuffled, including making park distance control optional rather than standard on the Lux.

Volkswagen's electronic stabilization program (ESP) is now standard.


Value Writeup

The four-cylinder 2009 Eos ranks as one of the best bargains among all convertibles, offering an upscale interior and a folding hardtop. The Eos boasts an extensive feature list that matches premium brand competitors while costing substantially less.


Model Highlights

The Volkswagen Eos model lineup is composed of just two trim levels for 2009--Komfort and Lux. Both are powered by Volkswagen's venerable 2.0L inline-4, which has a direct-injection and a turbocharger that makes 200 horsepower and 207 ft-lb of torque. The Komfort is available as either a 6-speed manual or 6-speed automatic, while the Lux comes only as an automatic. All Eos models are front-wheel drive.

Rather than employing a conventional fabric convertible top, the Eos has a sophisticated folding hardtop arrangement that retracts neatly into the trunk in just 25 seconds with the press of a button. What's more, a panoramic sunroof is integrated into the top to allow plenty of light even when the top is up, allowing a variety of configuration options when enjoying the sun.

Eos models with the automatic transmission use VW's Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG), a cleverly engineered double-clutch transmission, which makes no sacrifice in performance versus a manual gearbox and can be driven either in manual mode (with steering-wheel shift paddles) or like an automatic transmission. DSG is standard with the Lux model.

Safety features include both side-impact airbags and head-thorax bags, along with driver and passenger frontal air bags and an automatic rollover protection system. Anti-lock brakes and VW's electronic stability program (ESP) are also standard.

The Eos comes well equipped with cruise control, remote entry with alarm, power rearview mirrors with built-in supplemental LED turn signals, dual-zone climate control, a CD stereo, and heated windshield washer nozzles and seats. The Lux trim adds 17-inch "Sienna" alloy wheels, automatic headlights, rain-sensing wipers, and interior walnut trim.

Optional on the Komfort are 17-inch wheels, as well as the Technology Package with adaptive bi-xenon headlights and park distance control, and a Navigation Infotainment Package with DVD playback, MP3 capability, and multimedia socket for USB drive.

In addition to those packages, the Lux is available with a ten-channel, 600-watt audio system by Danish company Dynaudio.

The Eos has a roomy interior with modest seating for two in back, generous enough for adults for short trips. Since the top stows into the trunk, cargo space measures 10.5 cubic feet with the top up but only 6.6 cubic feet with the top down.


Pros

All-weather folding hardtop; luxury features; styling, back seat.

Summary
VOLKSWAGEN IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009 AND 2010 PASSENGER CARS MANUFACTURED BETWEEN SEPTEMBER 2008 AND AUGUST 2009. THE WIRING HARNESS OF A TEMPERATURE SENSOR IN THE DIRECT SHIFT GEARBOX (DSG) MAY HAVE CONNECTOR WIRES THAT WERE INSUFFICIENTLY CRIMPED. WITH INSUFFICIENTLY CRIMPED CONNECTOR WIRES, A TEMPERATURE SENSOR HAS THE POTENTIAL TO FALSELY DETECT A HIGH GEARBOX OIL TEMPERATURE, CAUSING THE TRANSMISSION TO ABRUPTLY SHIFT TO NEUTRAL. IF THIS HAPPENS, THE SELECTOR LEVER POSITION INDICATOR WITHIN THE INSTRUMENT PANEL WILL FLASH. IN ADDITION, THE "DEPRESS BRAKE PEDAL" INDICATOR LIGHT WILL BE ILLUMINATED, ALERTING THE DRIVER TO APPLY THE BRAKES.

Consequence
THE ABRUPT SHIFT TO NEUTRAL COULD LEAD TO A CRASH WITHOUT WARNING.

VOLKSWAGEN WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, INSPECT THE DSG AND, IF NECESSARY, REPLACE AN AFFECTED DSG TEMPERATURE SENSOR FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED A NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT VOLKSWAGEN AT 1-800-822-8987.

OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .
